#1: Wooden Accessories

Modern hippies are all about wellness and ecology, and the fashion world does its best to fit this philosophy and aesthetic. Among all the greenwashing, it’s great to find small and actually sustainable brands. These edgy, wooden hair accessories are trendy as hell and are perfect to pair with linen clothes and wicker bags. So, the tip is to discover small brands to spice up your style.

#2: Game-Changing Chin-Length Bangs

If you think updos aren’t your thing, you probably need to get some long bangs! It’s shocking how they frame the face and add playfulness to any updo. Chin-length bangs drive attention away from big forehead or chubby cheeks. Plus, they grow out beautifully. And, of course, long bangs make boho, messy buns look just amazing!

#3: Asymmetrical Bun

Asymmetrical forms are in vogue. An intentionally unperfect bun like this only emphasizes femininity and sense of style. Make sure to find the right balance of messiness in your look. Models rock chaotic hairstyles because they have perfect eyebrows and flawless skin. It’s very fine line between elegance and carelessness.

#4: Multifunctional Hair Scarf

Having a cute silk scarf opens a whole new doorway to creative hair styling. You can wrap it around a bun or even braid in. It’s such an interesting accent to play with! Make sure that the colors and patterns of your scarf match your clothes. Or do whatever you want, girl, if your style is mix ’n’ match!

#5: Side Bun Experiments

Versatile, simple, and always fabulous, everyone needs a side bun in their hair-styling arsenal. And it beautifully shows off baby, sun-kissed highlights. Play with texture and accessories, secure with bobby pins and finish with volumizing spray. Easy as 1, 2, 3!

“This textured updo is perfect for any occasion,” says hair guru Michael Gray, the creator of this hairstyle. Totally agree! You can adjust the level of festiveness by adding shiny accessories. If your hair isn’t so long, use a cheat code in a form of a donut bun maker. Let it be your little secret.

This sophisticated, braided masterpiece can be used to accessorize a messy bun, according to Michael Gray’s idea.

#8: Texture Is Key

Boho divas need good texturizing products to make sure their locks are voluminous and beachy. We recommend to pay attention to mousses for thin hair, texturizing finishing sprays and hair crimpers to create the desirable root volume. By the way, stylists recommend sea salt sprays because they make hair obedient and manageable; the whole updo can be secured with a couple of bobby pins.

#9: Goddess Vibes

Braids with beads are ideal for the bohemian-inspired look. Choose golden or wooden accessories to recreate this cute and elegant protective hairstyle. Strong fixation gels will help you achieve sleekness, but you can also make your bun look like a messy puff. Always leave room for fantasy because anything goes!
